@BeYourBreezeIf you've ever watched NBC's American Ninja Warrior, you know that their courses are anything but easy. They include things like spider climbs, pole jumping and a plethora of other things that seem impossible to do. Especially when you're timed and have to complete them consecutively. There hasn't been a woman who has been able to complete the course until now. Kacy Catanzaro, a former Towson University gymnast, has given everyone something to cheer about. She is five feet tall and one hundred pounds, but she refused to let that hold her back. Her performance at the 2014 Dallas American Ninja Warrior finals has made her the first woman to ever complete the course, and her performance was explosive! She took her time and became the first woman to ever qualify for the finals, also known as Mt. Midoriyama. Only the top competitors are granted the chance to take on this 70-foot steel structure. Catanzaro was named NCAA Southeast Regional Gymnast of the Year during her time at Towson and we can definitely see why! On Tuesday (July 15), Kacy took to twitter to thank everyone for their support: https://twitter.com/KacyCatanzaro/status/489119112941932544 We can't wait to see Kacy take on Mt. Midoriyama in Las Vegas! #MightyKacy, we're rooting for you the loudest! If you haven't seen the video, check it out below!
